The Only Law That Counts Is Love*

If God came to earth, what would He say? 
And would He say it to our face? 
If we were faced with Him in all His glory, 
What would He say if He had just one minute?

     And yeah, yeah, what'd He say?  
     Yeah, yeah, make my day!  
     And yeah, yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah.

     What if God would speak aloud? 
     Would he draw adoring crowds? 
     Would he stand atop a cloud 
     Tryin' to get us to hear?

If God came to earth, what would he say? 
And would you want to give ear if hearing meant 
That you would have to forgive and love your neighbor 
And love people, yes ones who are your enemies.

     And yeah, yeah, what'd He say?
     Yeah, yeah, make my day!
     And yeah, yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah.

     What if God would speak aloud?
     Would he draw adoring crowds?
     Would he stand atop a cloud
     Tryin' to get us to hear?

Just tryin' to get us to hear,
A quiet whisper in our ear:
Do not judge lest ye be judged;
The only law that counts is love.

     And yeah, yeah, what'd He say?
     Yeah, yeah, make my day!
     And yeah, yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah.

     What if God would speak aloud?
     Would he draw adoring crowds?
     Would he stand atop a cloud
     Tryin' to get us to hear?

Just tryin' to get us to hear,
A quiet whisper in our ear:
Do not judge lest ye be judged;
Just tryin' to get us to hear,
Do not judge lest ye be judged;
The only law that counts is love.
